Lucky Dip: Tom Collins

10 July 2020

Goalkeeper Tom Collins, set for his first season as a professional, answers our random lucky dip questions, choosing numbers between 1 and 99...

7. What is your earliest footballing memory?
I started playing two years up at the age of four, so that's quite early. I was a big centre-half, playing for Brigg Town.

21. Instagram or Snapchat?
Instagram, because I just like watching the football videos on there and prefer that.

26. What boots do you currently wear?
Nike Mercurials. I prefer to stick with Nike boots.

6. Who's the best striker you've faced?
A lad called Rumarn Burrell, who used to play for Grimsby Town last season and has just got a move to Middlesbrough,

9. Who's your favourite comedian?
Russell Howard. I like Kevin Hart as well though.

62. What's your favourite TV show?
It was Money Heist but I've been into Afterlife recently.

69. Who was your footballing idol growing up?
Peter Schmeichel. He was a great goalkeeper and my dad's a big Manchester United fan as well so I looked up to him playing.

80. What's the best goal you've ever scored?
I played in a cup final for Nettleham as a kid. Kicked it out of my hands and sidewinded it straight over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. That was the first season I played in goal. I did it against Hull City for the Under-14s too, though the wind helped me out a bit.

95. What's your favourite music?
I listen to all sorts to be honest, but listen to R'n'B quite a lot.

99. What was the last film you watched?
That was Law Abiding Citizen. More into series to be honest though.

77. What's your favourite season?
Summer easily.

81. What's your favourite phone app?
Probably Instagram to be honest.

10. Did you ever consider playing another sport?
No, it's always been football for me.

15. What's the best advice anyone's ever given you?
As a kid, if I see the ball going towards the top corner, I always used to think I wasn't going to get there, but Paul Musselwhite has a saying 'if you don't go, you don't know' and that's one that has stuck in my head.
